BHVI’s Chief Scientist, Professor Arthur Ho (University of New South Wales, Australia) has been named Adjunct Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Miami’s Biomedical Engineering faculty.  In this role, he will continue to provide mentoring and support to the faculty’s PhD students.

“Deep down, Arthur is really an engineer.  His approachable, easy going, caring and collegiate attitude combined with his deep expertise make him a favourite of our students since the early days when he worked with us”, says Professor Fabrice Manns, Chair of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Miami.

“Arthur has been working with students since the early 90s in areas such as understanding the optics of the eye, designing instrumentation, understanding the clinical aspects of the instrumentation and statistical analysis.  He is always hands-on and can be relied upon to answer the seemingly unanswerable.”

“I am delighted to take on this role,” says Dr Arthur Ho, BHVI’s Chief Scientist. “Through the decades of collaboration between our two institutions, I have come to consider the University of Miami my research ‘home away from home’.”

“It is an honour for BHVI when our researchers are recognised on the global stage.  We are delighted for and proud of Professor Ho and his significant and ongoing contribution to our field and industry,” added Yvette Waddell, CEO of BHVI.
